Fight Church proudly presents our seventh annual HotNights/WarmCoats BBQ potluck and school coat drive. All gently used coats will be donated to the Portland Public School's PTA clothing closet and made available to children in the free lunch program. an all inclusive exclusive engagement The artists which are the backbone of our events are more than just singers, rappers, comedians and DJs. These are intelligent, innovative, educated leaders. They're good people, good parents, good friends and the best of company. They have families, friends, children, and perhaps dogs which don't get recognized as part of the whole package that completes the artist as a genuine person. We have designed this event to showcase the other qualities that we hold dear as a community: Family, Fellowship, Honor, Charity, and Smoked Meats... In a nice outdoor setting and a conversational tone. YES. I bowed to pressure and got the permit. it's okay though, this isn't a protest. So please, join us. Get those "gently used" winter coats, grab your BBQ, bring your beer/wine, your kids, and your dog and come join the most exclusively inclusive community in the city. ***all coats raised will be distributed to the Portland Public School's PTA clothing closet and distributed to kids in the free and reduced lunch program. Our goal is to provide these kids with the basic staples of a quality self esteem - including a nice coat, with the belief that the exterior appearance is often the first obstacle preventing kids from attending school on a regular basis. http://www.facebook.com/events/658233290897660/

[purchase_link id="4850" style="button" color="orange" text="Buy Tickets"] Join writer Sara DeHoff and business coach Jim Newcomer from the Parts Department as they present this workshop on telling your compelling story. Do you want more customers, more supporters for your cause? Are you looking for a way to attract people to your mission? You are here because you’ve found a strategy for making the world a better place. That means you’ve got a story to tell—and it’s a powerful one. Telling your story right, you inspire people to not only learn more about you, but to take action and sign up for the solutions you offer. In this workshop, you’ll: • Learn how to write your story as the hero’s journey from trial and tribulation to triumph. • Have a chance to share your story with others and get direct feedback. • Gain inspiration from listening to other people's stories and how they tell them. Join us in the Hatch conference room and walk away with a marketing tool you can use in multiple ways. The workshop is $10. Imagine what you can do with a compelling story that people want to share. With both technical and creative projects, Sara's approach is to look at the concepts from the reader’s point of view and find the words that resonate with you and your audience. Whether guiding users through a complex software program or describing the birth of a new business, her goal is to make it easy and enjoyable for readers to grasp the concepts and utilize the information. Whether you need promotional materials or a detailed user guide, Sara can help you reach your audience and deliver your message effectively. Sara DeHoff Fourth Tuesdays

Why have dinner and a movie with Cory Booker and Jeff Merkley for $1000 when you can protest their support for the Gaza Massacre outside for free! We call on Oregonians of conscience to come out in protest of the continuing support for the siege and massacre of Gaza by United States Senators. We have an opportunity to confront both Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (and doubtless other key Oregon Democrats) for their vigorous support of Israel's current campaign of serial war crimes. They say their event is about standing up to special interests! Well, that is why WE will protest them! Protesters will begin gathering at 4:30pm in time for the 5:10pm $500/plate dinner and continue until the movie at 6:30pm. Protest will start at: Ya Hala at 8005 SE Stark St, Portland Protest will continue at: Academy Theatre, 7818 SE Stark St, Portland Perhaps Merkley and Booker will see us as dessert before the movie! Sponsored by: Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights (AUPHR), Jewish Voice for Peace - Portland (JVP), Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights (SUPER) This is what Booker says about Gazans and Hamas: "They are willing to deny their people food. They are willing to deny their people construction materials that could be building schools and building infrastructure. They are willing to deny medical supplies. They are willing to deny a higher standard of living in order to support clearly terrorist activities…We stand with our allies. We stand with the democratic State of Israel. We stand against terrorism." The pitch for the event and an article about Sen. Booker's total support for Israel follow: Here is their pitch: Senator Jeff Merkley and Senator Cory Booker (NJ) know what it’s like to stand up to the special interests and take on the battles that seem to have insurmountable odds. On August 27th, these two incredible Senators come together in Portland for dinner followed by a special showing of the Academy Award nominated film, “Street Fight,” that documented Senator Booker’s run for Newark mayor in 2002. Join Senator Cory Booker for a Dinner & Movie honoring Senator Jeff Merkley on Wednesday, August 27th.

Bright Way Zen Center Portland, OR Wednesday, August 27th 6-9pm $50 sliding scale Register ahead of time: info@brightwayzen.org or call Domyo - 971-207-1843 As we go about our everyday lives, how can we thoroughly honor the deep truth of interdependence we have discovered through Dharma practice? How can we expand the scope of our practice to include the social, political, economic, and ecological systems in which we participate? How do we open ourselves to the truth of suffering and injustice without being overwhelmed by grief, anger, or despair? This workshop is geared toward Buddhist practitioners, and is an invitation to explore our relationship with ourselves, our planet, and the state of the world with compassionate awareness as our guide. Meditation – as an engaged practice and an attitude of mind – has the capacity to heal and transform our relationship with the self, with one another, and with the world at large. Through sitting meditation, relational mindfulness, writing exercises, guided imagery, a Dharma talk, and facilitated group discussion, we will engage in a process to transform our pain for the world into empowered presence and compassionate action. We will allow our Dharma practice to deepen our embodiment of sustainability and ecological consciousness. This work integrates meditation and mindfulness practice with The Work That Reconnects, as created by eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, and inspiration/teachings from the natural world. http://www.facebook.com/events/258655627669377/

Jean Hill, a fiery octogenarian, is deeply concerned about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch—the world’s largest landfill. She spends her golden years attending city council meetings and cold-calling residents. Since 2010, she’s spearheaded a grassroots campaign to ban the sale of single-serve plastic water bottles in her hometown of Concord, Massachusetts. So far, her attempts to pass a municipal bylaw have failed. As she prepares for one last town meeting, Jean faces the strongest opposition yet, from local merchants and the International Bottled Water Association. But her fiercest challenge comes from Adriana Cohen, mother, model and celebrity publicist-turned-pundit, who insists the bill is an attack on freedom. When Adriana thrusts Jean’s crusade into the national spotlight, it’s silver-haired senior versus silver-tongued pro. In the same town that incited the American Revolution and inspired Thoreau’s environmental movement, can one little old lady make history? A tense nail-biter of a vote will decide.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Groups on the ground in St. Louis are calling for nationwide solidarity actions in support of Justice for Mike Brown and the end of police and extrajudicial killings everywhere. On Saturday at 1pm -- every week after the murder of Mike Brown by a Ferguson police officer--in St. Louis they gathered at the location that Mike was shot in the Canfield Apartment buildings. We ask that you gather at the places in your community on Saturdays where police and extrajudicial killings have occurred to memorialize lives that have been lost and demand justice by ending systemic violence upon communities of color. We know that the murder of Mike Brown in St. Louis is just one of hundreds of murders per year by extrajudicial means throughout this country. There are too many names to list: Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo and so many others. Just in the past weeks since Mike’s murder, the Los Angeles Police killed a 24 year-old man who was laying down when shot. Enough is enough--these killings must stop. We must end the systems of white supremacy, police brutality and inequality for communities of color that lead to these police killings. We hope that with renewed attention on this issue, we can widen the conversation to address both justice for Mike Brown and the underlying systems of oppression that play out against people of color on a day-to-day basis. Please join us this and everybSaturday in calling for Justice for Mike Brown and the end of extrajudicial killings everywhere. We know that we will need powerful visuals and strategies to support our movement. In St. Louis, people have suggested using black caskets, photographs of those lost, and chalk outlines to send our message. Strategically, this nationwide event will be a tactic to help community members understand their personal rights and push for broad-based action on the issue of extrajudicial killings. Regardless of where you are, you can help move this fight forward by hosting an action in solidarity with St. Louisans demanding Justice for Mike Brown. Mike’s death was not an isolated incident, and we hope that groups around the country will use this moment to lift up and reenergize their own campaigns against systematic violence and the prison industrial complex. http://www.facebook.com/events/719132681455778/

At dawn every Labor Day close to 500 hearty souls jump into the mighty Columbia River and swim the 1.1-mile stretch across the river to Hood River. Welcome to the annual Roy Webster Columbia River Cross-Channel Swim. The swim, which attracts participants from around the world, originated in 1942 when local orchardist Roy Webster challenged himself and some friends to swim across the river and back. Now on the day of the swim participants board the famous Sternwheeler paddleboat on the Hood River shoreline and are ferried to the Washington side. When signaled, swimmers jump off the boat in the “refreshing” Columbia and head back for the Oregon shore. This event (in its 72nd year!) brings back swimmers again and again.

The Portland Peace Choir is launching its 2014-15 season in September and is seeking to expand its membership. The Portland Peace Choir is a community choir that welcomes all voices. The choir meets on Wednesdays from 7-9 pm at St. David of Wales Episcopal Church, 2800 SE Harrison Street, in Portland. Rehearsals begin the first Wednesday in September, but all are invited to visit on any Wednesday they choose. There are no auditions necessary to join the Peace Choir; all skill levels are welcome. Basses and tenors are especially needed. For anyone who has ever wanted to sing secular songs of peace and joy in a no-pressure and accepting environment, the choir offers great fun in a supportive community. This season’s theme, “A Lasting Peace”, is from a choral suite of the same name that features Abraham Lincoln’s words as lyrics. The choir will commemorate the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s second inaugural address, which is inscribed in the Lincoln Memorial and was followed by his assassination the next month. In addition to “A Lasting Peace”, other music selections will include songs sung by Peter, Paul and Mary, Tracy Chapman, Cat Stevens, and Pete Seeger. The choir will also honor the passing of two luminaries, Nelson Mandela and Pete Seeger. For more information visit www.portlandpeacechoir.org or call 503-482-9630.

Elissa Washuta, a member of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, lives in Seattle. In her first book, My Body Is a Book of Rules, Elissa Washuta corrals the synaptic gymnastics of her teeming bipolar brain, interweaving pop culture with neurobiology and memories of sexual trauma to tell the story of her fight to calm her aching mind and slip beyond the tormenting cycles of memory. As Elissa Washuta makes the transition from college kid to independent adult, she finds herself overwhelmed by the calamities piling up in her brain. When her mood-stabilizing medications aren’t threatening her life, they’re shoving her from depression to mania and back in the space of an hour. Her crisis of American Indian identity bleeds into other areas of self-doubt; mental illness, sexual trauma, ethnic identity, and independence become intertwined. Sifting through the scraps of her past in fifteen formally inventive chapters, Washuta aligns the strictures of her Catholic school education with Cosmopolitan’s mandates for womanhood, views memories through the distorting lens of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and contrasts her bipolar highs and lows with those of Britney Spears and Kurt Cobain. Built on the bones of fundamental identity questions as contorted by a distressed brain, My Body Is a Book of Rules pulls no punches in its self-deprecating and ferocious look at human fallibility.

This series is comprised of three body focused workshops leading up to the opportunity to perform, but the purpose is not about the stage. The purpose is about you, and your writing, in whatever form it takes. Come with a piece in progress or an empty page, whether you're experienced or just begun. Body Language is a chance to connect with this bundle of atoms, neurons and nerve endings we walk around in. To put some words to the six plus senses that we have. To give voice to the feelings, the desires, and the experiences that living is made of. That knowing at our center that connects and repels. Participants will take part in three workshops, each lasting four hours (with a midway break), comprised of writing exercises, group brainstorming, and feedback sessions. Participants who sign up for the entire series will also get up to 1 hour of individual feedback from Sossity via email or google docs on the pieces they are working on in the series. The Friday following the last workshop will be October Dirty Queer, which is a great potential stage to try out the new pieces on!* (*All pieces read at Dirty Queer must be about sex, sexuality or gender, as usual. A resource guide of local open mics and useful links for writers will be provided.) Week One: The brain. This workshop is about finding our words, and laying a strong foundation to build them on. We'll use guided writing exercises, group brainstorming, and constructive feedback sessions to find bits of language that speak to us, and begin the writing process on at least one piece. Week Two: The gut. This workshop is about connecting our new language to the impulses that we receive from that secondary bundle of neurons in our gut - that instinct, or intuition, that we're so often taught to ignore. We'll use similar tools, but take our pieces to the next level – editing for visual and vocal impact. Week Three: The mouth. This workshop is about opening the pathway from your voice to their minds, gut and heart – framing those words with air shaped with intention for the impact you want to make. We'll work on timing, breathing, and intonation, as well as a final level of polishing and constructive feedback. During the spaces between these workshops, participants will have homework assignments, and the opportunity to solicit up to 1 hour of email feedback* from Sossity on the pieces being work shopped. (*No more than 4 email exchanges total, time to be tracked by Sossity with a 15 min notice to the participant when it's almost up.) $25/workshop or $60 for all three* (*pre-paid only) 4 low income scholarships ($10/workshop)* (*essay submission, preference given to people of color/people with disabilities) 11am-3pm at In Other Words - 15 person cap, 18+, bring your own food for the break. Accessibility info: + no steps to the door, or inside the building + slight ramp between the two areas of the building + aprox 3' width for the entrance + gender neutral bathroom (variable wheelchair access to the bathroom - it's wide, but there is a 90 degree turn from hallway to room, and no rail) + ramp to the stage + sturdy folding chairs and some couches + we ask that folks be low scent or scent free + please leave your furry companions at home unless they are service animals If you have any questions, please contact Sossity: sossitywrites@gmail.com

“Triple Divide” is said to be the only documentary of its kind on the controversial subject of fracking capable of speaking to all sides, with exclusive interviews from the industry, experts, as well as Americans suffering in the wake of shale gas development. It's the best movie on fracking to-date using facts, not fiction or spin. “Triple Divide” is built on evidence from cradle-to-grave investigations that attempt to answer the question: "How are state regulations and industry handling impacts from fracking?" The film reveals how it is that water contamination is being covered up by the industry and the state essentially rewriting water quality history in the United States by dismissing pre-drill tests. Films website and trailer: http://tripledividefilm.org/ Join the producers, Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman, and Ted Gleichman of the Oregon Sierra Club - for a discussion/Q&A session following the screening. “It’s hard to imagine anyone could have a fully-informed opinion about fracking without seeing “Triple Divide”. The filmmakers use cold hard facts and first-hand accounts to show how this industry is impacting real people. If you liked “Gasland”, you’ll love Triple Divide.” -- Jed Thorp, Ohio Sierra Club Admission: $5-20 donation requested; no one turned away due to lack of funds Sponsored by Alliance for Democracy and the Economic Justice Action Group of First Unitarian Church.

In a world full of confusion where people gain their sense of self from manipulating and controlling their surroundings, the Tao teaches us to let nature take its course by keeping things simple, being kind to each other, and going with the flow.

I'll teach you how to generate a revenue projection and budget that will show you how much to spend on venue, advertising, tech, and travel; I'll show you around a basic contract that's tight as a drum; I'll acquaint you with the basic payment models that determine how much money comes to you, and where that money comes from; and I'll teach you all the groovy booking industry jargon that you can use to haggle up a deal that will work best for you. A lot of people, even folks who book lots of shows for their bands or productions, just haven't had an opportunity to encounter this information. Well you've got an opportunity now. How do I know all this stuff? I've been producing shows in Portland for around 15 years. I worked as the in-house booker for Someday Lounge, Rotture, and Branx. I sat on the board of directors for 2Gyrlz Performative Arts, co-producing the month-long EnterActiveLanguage Festival. I co-created and co-directed Wanderlust Circus, Bogville, Societas Insomnia, 36 Invisibles, and just a whole hell of a lot of other shows; and I've placed those shows at just about every venue in the city. And along the way, I worked a few mid-level office jobs that gave me unique insights into budgeting and project management from companies that measure their success is millions of dollars instead of hundreds. These days, I'm selling out pretty big venues with alarming regularity, and I'm doing it all without spending much of anything up front. Sounds pretty good? Sign up now.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

This series is comprised of three body focused workshops leading up to the opportunity to perform, but the purpose is not about the stage. The purpose is about you, and your writing, in whatever form it takes. Come with a piece in progress or an empty page, whether you're experienced or just begun. Body Language is a chance to connect with this bundle of atoms, neurons and nerve endings we walk around in. To put some words to the six plus senses that we have. To give voice to the feelings, the desires, and the experiences that living is made of. That knowing at our center that connects and repels. Participants will take part in three workshops, each lasting four hours (with a midway break), comprised of writing exercises, group brainstorming, and feedback sessions. Participants who sign up for the entire series will also get up to 1 hour of individual feedback from Sossity via email or google docs on the pieces they are working on in the series. The Friday following the last workshop will be October Dirty Queer, which is a great potential stage to try out the new pieces on!* (*All pieces read at Dirty Queer must be about sex, sexuality or gender, as usual. A resource guide of local open mics and useful links for writers will be provided.) Week One: The brain. This workshop is about finding our words, and laying a strong foundation to build them on. We'll use guided writing exercises, group brainstorming, and constructive feedback sessions to find bits of language that speak to us, and begin the writing process on at least one piece. Week Two: The gut. This workshop is about connecting our new language to the impulses that we receive from that secondary bundle of neurons in our gut - that instinct, or intuition, that we're so often taught to ignore. We'll use similar tools, but take our pieces to the next level – editing for visual and vocal impact. Week Three: The mouth. This workshop is about opening the pathway from your voice to their minds, gut and heart – framing those words with air shaped with intention for the impact you want to make. We'll work on timing, breathing, and intonation, as well as a final level of polishing and constructive feedback. During the spaces between these workshops, participants will have homework assignments, and the opportunity to solicit up to 1 hour of email feedback* from Sossity on the pieces being work shopped. (*No more than 4 email exchanges total, time to be tracked by Sossity with a 15 min notice to the participant when it's almost up.) $25/workshop or $60 for all three* (*pre-paid only) 4 low income scholarships ($10/workshop)* (*essay submission, preference given to people of color/people with disabilities) 11am-3pm at In Other Words - 15 person cap, 18+, bring your own food for the break. Accessibility info: + no steps to the door, or inside the building + slight ramp between the two areas of the building + aprox 3' width for the entrance + gender neutral bathroom (variable wheelchair access to the bathroom - it's wide, but there is a 90 degree turn from hallway to room, and no rail) + ramp to the stage + sturdy folding chairs and some couches + we ask that folks be low scent or scent free + please leave your furry companions at home unless they are service animals If you have any questions, please contact Sossity: sossitywrites@gmail.com

FREE Event! Welcome to a new local gaming event organized and run BY women! If you identify as female, genderqueer, gender fluid, or as a gender minority, you are welcome to join our inclusive story-gaming community for Femme Game Night events! All experience levels are more than welcome, from first-time gamers to seasoned storytellers and roleplayers. If you are intrigued by RPGs and/or story games, but have had your doubts about jumping into an established group or felt uncomfortable going to another organized gaming event, you are SUPER DUPER EXTRA welcome.Story games are a little bit like board games, and a lot like grown-up versions of the “let’s pretend” games you probably played as a child.

We open our season with a play Third Rail has been dying to produce since it was the hit of Portland Center Stage's 2009 JAW Festival, MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno. The residents of Middletown lead lives that are probably not too different from ours. They wake up, go to work, say hello to their neighbors, fix the plumbing, seek advice on parenting, and try to live lives that are as rewarding as possible. It's all fairly ordinary. And yet...ordinary doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of this quirky, word-frenzied, refraction of OUR TOWN. MIDDLETOWN is a quizzical fable about life in all its sweetness and pain, joy and wonder, beginnings and endings.

This series is comprised of three body focused workshops leading up to the opportunity to perform, but the purpose is not about the stage. The purpose is about you, and your writing, in whatever form it takes. Come with a piece in progress or an empty page, whether you're experienced or just begun. Body Language is a chance to connect with this bundle of atoms, neurons and nerve endings we walk around in. To put some words to the six plus senses that we have. To give voice to the feelings, the desires, and the experiences that living is made of. That knowing at our center that connects and repels. Participants will take part in three workshops, each lasting four hours (with a midway break), comprised of writing exercises, group brainstorming, and feedback sessions. Participants who sign up for the entire series will also get up to 1 hour of individual feedback from Sossity via email or google docs on the pieces they are working on in the series. The Friday following the last workshop will be October Dirty Queer, which is a great potential stage to try out the new pieces on!* (*All pieces read at Dirty Queer must be about sex, sexuality or gender, as usual. A resource guide of local open mics and useful links for writers will be provided.) Week One: The brain. This workshop is about finding our words, and laying a strong foundation to build them on. We'll use guided writing exercises, group brainstorming, and constructive feedback sessions to find bits of language that speak to us, and begin the writing process on at least one piece. Week Two: The gut. This workshop is about connecting our new language to the impulses that we receive from that secondary bundle of neurons in our gut - that instinct, or intuition, that we're so often taught to ignore. We'll use similar tools, but take our pieces to the next level – editing for visual and vocal impact. Week Three: The mouth. This workshop is about opening the pathway from your voice to their minds, gut and heart – framing those words with air shaped with intention for the impact you want to make. We'll work on timing, breathing, and intonation, as well as a final level of polishing and constructive feedback. During the spaces between these workshops, participants will have homework assignments, and the opportunity to solicit up to 1 hour of email feedback* from Sossity on the pieces being work shopped. (*No more than 4 email exchanges total, time to be tracked by Sossity with a 15 min notice to the participant when it's almost up.) $25/workshop or $60 for all three* (*pre-paid only) 4 low income scholarships ($10/workshop)* (*essay submission, preference given to people of color/people with disabilities) 11am-3pm at In Other Words - 15 person cap, 18+, bring your own food for the break. Accessibility info: + no steps to the door, or inside the building + slight ramp between the two areas of the building + aprox 3' width for the entrance + gender neutral bathroom (variable wheelchair access to the bathroom - it's wide, but there is a 90 degree turn from hallway to room, and no rail) + ramp to the stage + sturdy folding chairs and some couches + we ask that folks be low scent or scent free + please leave your furry companions at home unless they are service animals If you have any questions, please contact Sossity: sossitywrites@gmail.com

For 25 years, Lost Valley has been a leader in providing sustainable education to students from all over the world. On October 11th, 2014 the intentional community and education center is hosting an action day in connection with The Permaculture Action Tour. The day will begin at 10am, with a tour of Lost Valley's land, natural buildings, and gardens. From 11am to 4pm, we will host a natural building workshop and demonstration, focusing on the plastering of a straw bale wall that is part of an off grid cabin project.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

We meet at In Other Words on the third Thursday of each month to discuss young adult novels through a feminist/queer lens. How do our reactions to YA literature change as we age?

As part of their annual celebration of Halloween, Hood River merchants will welcome ghouls and goblins from 5-7pm on October 31. To ensure a “Safe Halloween” time for everyone, the City of Hood River will close Oak Street between 1st and 6th streets, as well as the connecting side streets north of State Street and south of Cascade Avenue. Free parking is available from 5-7pm at the Mt. Hood Railroad parking lot. During Safe Halloween, many merchants throughout all of downtown (not just in the street-closure area) will close their businesses but remain on site at the front of their stores to greet and treat costumed young people. Parents are encouraged to accompany their children, and take care when crossing the streets, as people may need to move parked vehicles during the closure period
